Why I use color: I use color because I am not allowed to put up posters but my parents let me paint my room as I pleased! Running away very fast from the original white - I chose this frothy blue colour because it reminds me of the sea and is very soothing. My duvet introduces green stripes into the room, which makes everything a bit fresher & modern. My black cubes are the other color touch-point in this room – they house my varied treasures and books, which are colour organised. I love hanging out in my room; especially taking naps in here on hot days - it's very calming!
2 Good color tips:
1. Color is all about love - choose it because you love it not
because it might be trendy right now.
2. Test pots/test painting are very important. That pretty grey you
like might just turn out purple later on!
2 Good color resources:
1. The natural world creates some awesome hues – I like to take
inspiration from that.
2. I love looking at foreign magazines (to me!) online like Met Home
& Elle Décor – it's a huge diverse world out there.
